    Hi Vern,

    Yeah - you've got me beat but I recently upgraded to a 32" 2560x1440 (2K) Gsync monitor - it's a complete game changer for ORTS, TSRE and my modeling software - I don't know how I ever got by without it... Enjoy...

    Track Viewer has the Advanced AI Shunting features built in as well for creating paths - couple/uncouple cars - horn blows - waits - play WAV - etc etc etc...

    Regards,
    Scott

    I still use the RE because I'm stubborn and haven't had the time to dive into TSRE yet. My next laptop purchase will probably force that decision on me...
    Hi...

    C'mon in the waters warm... One of the biggest effects that improve a route for me - is a properly painted ROW - I can't use a route without it... What used to take me many months to accomplish in Mosaic - I can do in a single evenings work with TSRE - it's enough to make you giddy - seriously...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Thanks for the advice. It inspired me to commit to learning route editing. I want to edit some existing routes first. I know I can't release them even though many routes could arguably be considered abandonware, but that is another topic. I love MSTS, particularly now we have OpenRails. Prior to that, it was a real love-hate relationship because it was unstable.

    Is there a forum dedicated to Trackviewer? Its been a real pain building paths with it. I figure I'm doing things wrong.

    Open up Trackviewer and click on help up top.
    Click on documentation and go the the website when prompted.
    It's all there.
    It's not really intuitive at all until you've worked with it for a bit.
